Winner, winner chicken dinner

Hidey ho!

So I bet you all want to know who the winner of the Darby & Penelope candy is, huh? ;)
Ok, ok... without further ado, the lucky lady selected by Random Generator is......

#43 Kimberly S

Thanks so much to everyone who played along and you just know there will be more chances to win next month so be sure to check back then!

Now, onto today's card... I've got one for this week's Monday Mania challenge that is being hosted by my bloggin' buddy Jenn! Jenn came up with a recipe challenge to pierce it, punch it & piece it. Now punches for me... no problem, I use those quite a bit. But the piecing and the piercing? Neither one are a regular go-to in my card making repertoire so this is where things got a bit tricky. I sat and thought about the piercing for a bit and when I came across Cheeky Shooter I had a light bulb moment! Not only did the regular piercing remind me of tooled leather but I thought it could look cool to take a larger embossing stylus and pierce it through the paper in a couple of spots creating the look of bullet holes. Then I just pieced Shooter's hat, top and skirt and it was challenge met and I gotta say I love how this card turned out! :)

Thanks for stopping by... I hope you enjoy your Monday as much as I plan to!

Dear Amy

As always your cards are so inspirational and full of colour - i love them.
May I just say I love your drawing Oleander and hope you'll make her into a digi/stamp as I love stamps a little different.

Creativity abounds when you have to think outside the box huh?! Such an awesome job of using all 3 elements of my challenge.
